The cloudy signs

Watching “I, Robot” today helped in identifying the source of my dislike to “clouds” and other techno-fashions of the day. Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov and numerous others have been writing about the same things over and over yet it does seem to fall mostly on dead ears: don’t place everything in technology,  don’t get blinded by shiny laws like “do no evil”, or “three laws of robotics”. Internet gets us closer and closer to the book-burning future, our daily dependency on machines grows and we don’t bother ourselves with the safeguards.
We trust our data to the cloud thinking it won’t disappear and we buy books we believe won’t age or vanish.
Growing up with Asimov, Bradbury, Adams and others helped in the formation of my thinking, my understanding of the world.
